Samsung’s upcoming high-end smartphone line may not be equipped with Exynos 2200 chip due to difficulties in the production process.
Normally, Galaxy S series integrates Qualcomm Snapdragon chip in some countries such as the US, Canada and China, Japan. In other markets like Vietnam, the device uses Exynos chip manufactured by Samsung.
The latest generation of chips – Exynos 2200 – is appreciated for its integrated GPU developed by AMD, which is more advanced than Qualcomm’s Adreno GPU. However, a person claiming to be a former Samsung employee, nicknamed Super Roader, revealed to the site LetsGoDigital that the Korean electronics company is planning to equip Snapdragon 898 for all Galaxy S22 versions globally.
If the information is accurate, this will be the first time Samsung uses Snapdragon for Galaxy S in all markets. According to Super Roader, the production of Exynos 2200 is experiencing problems and it may be difficult to meet enough production for the Galaxy S22. One of the difficulties lies in the six-core AMD RDNA GPU with advanced ray tracing technology. This GPU is also the point that makes Samsung’s new chip attract attention compared to Snapdragon 898.
Previously, Super Roader also provided information about the difference in the design of the Galaxy S22 compared to the previous generation. Specifically, the Galaxy S22 and S22+ do not change in design, while the S22 Ultra inherits the style of the Note series and integrates the S Pen slot.
The three models are equipped with screens of 6.1 inches, 6.6 inches and 6.8 inches, respectively, with 120 Hz refresh rate. The machine changed the aspect ratio from 20: 9 to 19.3: 9, so it looked shorter and wider than the old model. A highlight on the Ultra version is the LTPO 2K panel with a record brightness of 1,800 nits, higher than the 1,500 nit level on the S21 Ultra.
Technology expert Jon Prosser cites a source confirming that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S22 trio on February 8, 2022 and be sold 10 days later.
